Hi Weiteng,

Welcome to TP community...u meet all kinds of people, travellers,etc...here...so join the discussions...

now, to your question...since, u have set april for your travel..so stick with it..tho from the Asian point of view, i would go during the low period (may till end oct)...things, rooms, etc are cheaper...unless, of course, you area seasoned hand at travelling..which means u know how to get around...

Maybe in late Aug, Sept, there will be rain...but that is southeast asia, malaysia included! I believe, PP & SR are in your list ?

Feel free to ask...cheers

Hi

I was in Cambodia in September this year for 3 weeks. Its low season and places like Siem Reap and Kep are virtual ghost towns. Which suited me perfectly. No.1 you get great deals on car hire accom and trips and secondly you don't have to put up with masses of other tourists. Its supposed to be the rainy season and yes it did rain, but it tended to hammer down for 30mins or so then disappear and it cleared the air.

Either way there isn't a bad time to go to Cambodia, its a wonderful country, you'll love it!

Say I spend 9 days in PP and Siem Reap. I have place to stay and only pay RM143 + tax USD25 for the round trip flight(Airasia). Is RM900 enough for the whole trip?

Please advice. I need your advise desperately. Thanks.

Dana, thanks for your pm. Appreciate if you can send more about PP & SR. Are you sure RM900 enough for 8 days in Cambodia? (not USD900)
I am lucky to hear it is going to celebrate New Year in Cambodia in April, coincidencely meeting my arrival in PP.

Cheers,
Lee

Hi, i am new in travellerspoint, actually i already booked my air ticket to Cambodia in this coming December, plan to stay 6 days, 2 days in Phnom Pehn and 4 days in Siem Reap.

I have friend recommend to stay Bohdi Tree in Phnom Pehn because they have a nice environment and good foods serve around there. For Siem Reap accomodation, still find a nice place to stay, anyone recommend a nice place with budget USD30 per night?

Thanks.

;)

I think the high season starts from Nov/Dec up until around Feb/March, these times are probably the best weather conditions, dry, not as hot (although still very hot imo!) and the least rain.

There is a guesthouse called the Red Piano, which is in the heart of Siem Reap. It was full when I was in Siem Reap, but I've heard very good things about it. They also had a bar/restuarant which served excellent food. Not sure of the price, but think they had all sorts of rooms at different prices. I think it's on the net if you do a search.

I stayed at a guesthouse called the Ancient Angkor Guesthouse, which was also in the Siem Reap centre, this was $13 a night (double room) & included a simple breakfast. It was run by a very friendly & helpful family. Please pm me if you need anymore details. :)
